No midi input into live from external keyboard

Hi. I have a problem where live is not receiving input from my midi keyboard. This was working before but has now stopped and I don't know why. I can see the indicator on the top right of live is not flashing when I play a key. I can see the device in the midi preferences though

However if I launch a synth such as NI FM8 as standalone outside of Live it receives input from the keyboard fine. I can also see the device registered properly in the windows device manager.

Any help would be appreciated. I have live 8.4 on windows 7 64-bit and a novation launch key 49 keyboard.

    What midikeyboard are you using?
    Has it got presets for live to choose..
    That's all I can think of, hope it settles with or without my thoughts though
